Barney Wilen - New York Romance (1994)



Sumptuous blowing from the old master on soprano, baritone and tenor saxophones accompanied by stalwarts Kenny Barron on piano, Ira Coleman on bass and Lewis Nash on drums in a set consisting of mostly ballads and mid-tempo numbers, ideal vehicles for the group to display what good jazz is all about through this seminar in group empathy and interplay. Recorded at the historic Van Gelder Studios, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, on June 19 & 20, 1994. Highly recommended.

1. No Problem '94
2. Cry Me a River
3. Blues Walk
4. You've Changed
5. You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To
6. Mack the Knife
7. Don't Fence Me In

9. I Will Say Goodbye
